The Green Room membership and smartistU community have been a HUGE asset and vital resource for me. I discovered Jamie New and her work at a time where I was transitioning in my journey as an artist and was looking for a mentor to help me navigate my new path with a new mindset.

Through our process of working together, I’ve been able to get clear what I need to focus on, begin building a team, and take the necessary steps to make my artistry an actual, sustainable business.

The process of manifesting the dream (being a full-time musician) is an on-going project, filled with ups and downs, and many setbacks; but with Jamie and the smartistU community as an essential part of my team, I feel closer than ever to seeing it actually manifest.

Joining this community definitely helped me realize that I don’t have to do this myself. The connections I’ve made with industry people have provided invaluable information and truly has opened up doors and clarified information that I wouldn’t have otherwise had access to or understood. Through this community and training, I’ve been able to unfreeze myself and address the factors that contributed to my fear of progressing my business plans.

Being armed with the information and having the support and backing of a huge global community that cares about you makes the difference. I am now making business decisions and making moves more confidently and with much clearer visions!

Tayo Ajose, Joyful Tunes Management

SmartistU helped me find my footing so I could start maneuvering my way through the industry with confidence. Having this community of other managers who are going through the same things or have been through them is a comforting feeling. I never feel like I’m asking a “stupid” question. I never feel afraid to ask a question like someone is going to judge me for not knowing. Jamie has created this amazing platform to learn, grow, share, and celebrate with our industry colleagues.
